Capucine shared her story of what TARA means to her

I’ll never set a foot in India !

And yet, 6 years ago, I set off for the first time to live in India for 4 months.

I was full of prejudices, I didn't want to go to this unknown country, I wasn't really interested in discovering a new culture.

But TARA Child Protection & Empowerment was the only NGO I found that seemed reliable (i.e. you don't pay €3,000 to end up with 40 volunteers and nothing to show for it).

So here I am, off to New Delhi for 4 months to develop communications for this Franco-Indian NGO founded by Pascal Fautrat. Thanks to his kindness and his love for India, I too fell in love .Love at first sight for this country of a thousand facets, but also for the 60 children of the NGO at the time ?.

TARA welcomes them into its four homes in New Delhi, offering them a safe family environment, full medical care, a balanced lifestyle and an excellent education in Delhi's best schools.

This is not just a nice description but a reality. This year, I welcomed Shyamu, a former TARA boy, into my family for the Festive season. Thanks to the NGO, he was able to get into one of India's top design universities and was on an exchange semester in France.

But to give them a new start in life, TARA needs financial support - and that means your help!
